Just a thought here. I have seen front axels made from Ford 9 inchers and even the 10.5 14 bolt axel. So I was pondering My thoughts and wondering why the semi float 14 bolt axel would'nt make a good front axel. It has just about the same size ring and pinion as a Dana 60 and GM made a billon of them. I know it could be done and I also know that it would cost alot but lets face it how many Dana 60's are left. Just think of all those 8 lug semi-floaters out there that no one wants and are a dime a dozen.
